Jackson's Dad Suspects 'Foul Play'

Subscribe to Michael Jackson alerts

Michael Jackson's father Joe suspects "foul play" over the superstar's death - because the singer was happily chatting with fans just minutes before suffering a fatal cardiac arrest.
The Thriller hitmaker reportedly mingled with supporters at the gates of his rented mansion in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles last Thursday (25Jun09).
Joe Jackson is adamant that just minutes after returning inside the house, his son was dead - suggesting something untoward happened to the star.
He tells California news channel ABC7, "Michael was dead before he left the house (to go to hospital). I'm suspecting foul play somewhere. He was waving to everybody and telling them he loves them and all, the fans at the gate. A few minutes after Michael was out there, he was dead."
The comments came amid claims from Jackson family lawyer Brian Oxman that police in Los Angeles have launched a criminal investigation into Jackson's death.
He tells U.K. tabloid The Sun, "I can tell you, and this is a new development, there is a criminal investigation taking place by the Los Angeles Police Department. That is the case. They have told the family."
